that the first thing all jewish voters look at is where a candidate stand on israel, that is making a certain narrow view of the jewish people that i find to be a, not true and b, it makes me angry. >> when i went to israel -- >> the obama campaign is taking the republican challenge seriously, firing back with an ad focused on israel. >> our bond with israel will be unbreakable. >> the ko chairman ofco-chairma called florida democrats for romney says it's absolutely not all about israel. >> i think we need to look at this as a business and put somebody in there that can run this country and bring pack the jobs. >> four years ago, obama won 78% of the jewish vote. political scientists say the attacks could cost the president as much as 5% of that support. the quift of about 25,000 votes. in a close election, perhaps the difference, now, jewish people make up about 3.5% of the state's residents, but 8% of the voters. >> good report. thanks very much. >> join us and the entire cnn team for election night in america. our continuous live coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. eastern tuesday night. we'll be
island woke up without power. joining me now live on the phone is new york congressman steve israel whose district encompasses a large portion of island. what can you give us on the progress this morning? >> we've gone from a wind emergency and a flood emergency to a power emergency. as you just said, there are nearly 3/4 of 1 million long islanders who do not have power. long island power authority is making a slow and incremental progress. what concerns me at this point is last night for the first time since the storm, the temperatures dipped down into the 30s. so long islanders are experiencing very cold temperatures. if it continues, this becomes beyond a power emergency. it becomes a public health and safety emergency. one thing that the administration has done, which i'm grateful for, is they've deployed national forest service assets, chainsaws, woodchipers, and personnel, about 120 national forest service personnel to long island to help with tree removal and downed trees. >> it is pretty amazing when we think about this being november 1st. here we are talking about being in the t

florida jewish community not happy with the president as far as the state with israel. if you can drive by the turnpike and see obama oy vay or friends don't let friends get newt those are from viewish grass-roots organizations. that tells you this is an atmosphere not conducive to the president being successful. >> one piece of information as we sort through this is early voting for democrats is down three points. it is up two points with the republicans. t how is your race? i have two different polls for your race. i have one that is a commanding lead and one which is neck and neck. >> i would think you would definitely believe the one with the commanding lead. they all know that the polling they see with us having a good lead over our opponent we are talking about the issues talking about solving these issues as far as our small business owners talking about turning back the regular story environment. they are trying to put on the agriculture industry. make sure we are doing the right things with our beach cleaned up and also the everglades restorationstration project which is very i

they say they're not comfortable with the presidency of on israel. -- the presidents stance on israel. >> what about voted on election day in the state of florida? is the state prepared, and could there be another possible repeat of what happened in 2000? >> statistically you would think of it do not favor something -- like what happened in 2000 again, but of course it could happen again. secondly, the big concern is the fact that we have historically long ballot. in florida, as in many states, a lot of those people but only in the major elections. they are paying attention to the race between president obama and mitt romney. there will vote on tuesday. when they get to the polls on tuesday it will be surprised because the ballot includes many judicial elections. it includes 11 proposed constitutional amendments. the ballot is very long, and there is no time limit on how long the person can take to boats. some election supervisors indicate they are concerned about the possibility of long lines of the polls on tuesday, which could lead a late night for results. to go we of heard some l

to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the last week if i can borrow your keith jackson refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, let me inject. i've not plugged into the romney campaign like "the politico" guys. i know about christie. i'm skeptical of the idea that there ever was a moment when romney was going to pick christie for this. it seems cute that it's coming out at this moment. jonathan i want to ask you about demographics heading in to this tuesday. seems like there's basically a test that we're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a
in july. and for bungling that foreign trip to england, israel and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce the bump he needed. as the focus of the race turned to medicare and the ryan budget. the republican convention was disrupted by weather and a guy talking to an empty chair. and then mid september, the leaked video of mitt romney's 47% remark surfaced. the first presidential debate, romney bested obama in front of 66 million people and began to benefit from mement tum. and then hurricane sandy hit. on tuesday romney will try to unseat an incumbent president, he's trying to knock a party out of power after just one term. while the president is targeting each part of his coalition with a handful of small arguments, romney is counting on winning the large one. >> he made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep, i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> so where does that leave us? the two campaigns believe passionately in two differen
the importance of the relationship, the special relationship with israel. and this is a president that has frankly abandoned, thrown israel under the the bus. this is a president who has appeased the enemies of the united states, whether it's castro brothers, whether it's chavez or others and apologizes for the united states and when mitt romney is elected we're going to change that and get somebody in the white house with backbone who understands we have to support our allies and support our friends and frankly, oppose our adversaries and enemies. and the thing is here, you have a governor making tough decisions, but approval ratings are out 40%. and how does that translate? >> look, you know, the governor has inherited a very difficult situation, and, buts' making it better and his numbers are getting better and i think you'll see that his numbers continue to get better. people in florida are sophisticated and continue not to accept this. what we have right now is the best that the country has to offer. i have a seven-year-old son,'s going to be seven in december. for his sake, he deserv
made history. [applause] host: this tweet from benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, who congratulates u.s. president barack obama on his election victory. fort lauderdale, florida. independent line. caller: thank you for taking my call. host: did you vote yesterday or early in florida? caller: a voted early. actually, i went out and did some last minute can the scene for the present, and i will tell you -- can this -- canvassing for the president. i always try to keep myself informed, and one of the things i realized about mitt romney is although he was a good businessman, the businesses that he had or businesses that he consolidated and got rid of jobs. so, we also had another businessman that was a president, hoover, and the country went into a depression. we have a businessman, george bush, that was the president, and our country almost went into a depression after that. people have to realize that when our elected officials are irresponsible by saying we have to be like a household, the government is not run like our household. that is totally ridiculous. it is absol
what the middle east peace deal is going to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sor
with governor romney and israel in the campaign. you won't see the president out here. this is the most conservative republican part of the state. you see them both competing here in the i-4 corridor, where you find independents. vice president and paul ryan, i'll pull out the map as we close the conversation. that's just paul ryan, that's just vice president biden, that's governor romney. and that's president obama. notice the pattern, in the last couple weeks, this is the last two weeks. the last two weeks of this campaign, about 9 states have gotten the attention, the rest of you just get to watch. >> thanks very much. we're awaiting speeches as i said by president obama and romney. romney's wrapping up election eve at a rally in new hampshire. jim acosta is there, he joins me now on the phone. what's the mood like within the romney camp tonight? >> i'm sorry i can't get in front of a camera right now. the romney campaign has been running behind for a good part of the last six hours or so. mainly because mitt romney has been trying to shake every hand. talk to every overflow crowd. i
their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say every mailing we sent out, but just about every mailing that we sent out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem as the capital of israel from his platform and then belatedly reinserting it, or it mentioned his call for israel to return to '67 borders, or it mentioned the fact that his administration had slow-walked sanctions against iran. and those issues have real resonance among pro-israel evangelicals. >> jonathan saw hasn't is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this sector for a long time, and thank you, ralph, for your comments. he is the money and politics reporter for bloomberg, and he's also the past president of the national press club. what did you see yesterday, and what does it mean for the country? >> well, in 2010 we saw all this secret money into the races, and the republicans took control of the senate and the house, and all observers said this is just going to be a foreshadowing of 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money as romney. romney had help with some of the
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
. one issue that resonates, especially in south florida is the question of israel. jewish voters traditionally are registered as democrats, but rabbis have been asking questions it their congregations about the president's commitment to israel. florida has the second largest jewish population outside of new york. there are 12 million registered voters in florida. both campaigns have spent a record $192 million to try to win their votes. the prize here, 29 electoral votes. savannah? >> kerry sanders, thank you. >> all right. let's go to colorado now. nine electoral votes up for grabs in that state and nbc's kristen dahlgren is in centennial this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the candidates have been here dozens of times over the past few months. president obama won colorado by 9% back in 2008, but this could be a very different story. all of the polls within the margin of error. now, most coloradoans have already voted in early voting. we can't tell you the count, but we can tell you the breakdown, that is 37% of voters so far have been republican,
